Contracting FAQsPosted on by optioffice
Here at J.R.S. Contracting we offer free advice to anyone who gets in touch because we believe that you should be as well informed as possible before you make a decision on whether to have work done. To make the process easier for you we have put together a few questions we are regularly asked by our customers:
Can You Tarmac Over a Concrete Driveway?
Some driveways are suitable for a quick and easy tarmac overlay. However the suitability for this depends on the quality of the concrete and also its form. For instance tarmacking over concrete slabs would not be advised as this could easily move and the tarmac will then crack causing a large problem which could result in a much larger cost. If the existing concrete is not suited for a tarmac overlay, it can simply be removed and preparation work completed so that the tarmac can be laid to a high standard.
How Much Will an Extension Cost?
There are many factors you must take into account before you extend your home. To calculate this it is best to get quotes from all parties that will be involved including the local authority who you will need to apply to for planning permission. We at J.R.S. Contracting will be able to give you a quote for the building work taking into account how many stories you are wishing to extend and also the size of the development.
How High Should My Fence Be?
In a back garden you can build a fence up to 6 feet high but you should consult your neighbours before doing this. In your front garden the fence height should be lower at around 3 feet high as keeping it this low has benefits such as deterring burglars due to high visibility.
What is the Best Material to Use for My Driveway?
This purely depends on your personal taste. Tarmac gives a smooth matte finish as will asphalt but other materials such as gravel can look elegant due to the light colours that you can choose from. With paved driveways, many designs can be created as well as using different shades which can look unique.
